On a good clear and fine day you can stay a while and enjoy all the wild life. Otherwise just enjoy the Cafe.

Located at the end of the Isle of Man the sound visitors centre offers stunning views over the Sound of Man and across to the small Calf of Man Island. The visitors centre also includes a cafe which serves excellent food.

The Sound area is a wonderfull place to visit - watch the Seals and Basking Sharks, stroll along the cliffs and see all the sea birds, Manx Chuffs, Skylarks, etc. The Sound Cafe is clean and well presented although a little over-priced but an ideal place to watch the world going by.

This has to be one of the most scenic visitor's centres in the country. Stunning views over the Calf of man. The snacks are fresh, as are the cakes (yummy!) reasonably priced. Staff are friendly and efficiant. Always clean and tidy. As are the toilets. Was very busy during TT week, in fact packed out, popular all year round.
